WGSN Global Fashion Awards

5th November 2013

Emma J Shipley is delighted to have won the Avery Dennison Emerging Fashion Brand Award at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards 2013!

The esteemed award was presented at the fourth annual WGSN awards ceremony on 30th October at the V&A, London.

The Emerging Fashion Brand award reflects Avery Dennison’s vision that successful designers must not only create inspired fashion, but they must also elevate their brand to win the consumer’s attention and purchases.

Tim Voegele-Downing, Global Creative Director at Avery Dennison RBIS comments, “While we saw phenomenal entries from all finalists, Emma J Shipley ultimately stood out. She created not just an electrifying collection but also a powerful brand that helps differentiate her products. She has already secured some very high-profile collaborators, including retailer Anthropologie and designer Nicholas Kirkwood, and this award confirms her incredible impact and potential.”

An international judging panel of 50 prominent fashion designers, opinion leaders and journalists considered designers’ collections from a design perspective as well as from a branding and marketing context. As the winner, Shipley received a €12,000 prize from Avery Dennison to elevate her brand, building on its current success to grow into a scalable fashion business.
